Mega Millions, Powerball jackpot swells to $723 million

There have been more than 539,000 Florida MEGA MILLIONS winners in this series of rollovers, winning more than $6 million in prizes.

Not a single person hit the jackpot in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing and the chance to win big continues to grow for lottery players.

The Mega Millions jackpot drawing is scheduled for 10 p.m. Friday, while the winning Powerball numbers will be drawn at 9:59 p.m. Saturday.

Now, Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing will be worth $470 million up by $50 million. If a MI player wins tonight, it would be the largest Mega Millions prize won in the state.
